I have Freesat 200 on continually for latest and revolving BBC News.
Unless there is a specific program to watch of interest (listen to)

A mixture really


Magic radio most of the time but occasionally switch to Absolute 80s and when I want something completely different Big Finish Productions Doctor Who audiobooks!

Radio 4. Though when a repeat turns up (and there are many!) I slide the DAB to Planet Rock.


Oh yeah.  :-))

usually Gold, music from the 60's 70's and 80's, much better than the stuff they push out today.

Absolutely none!

If there is noise from elsewhere then I have one of those "deep space" (even though deep space is in reality silent) relaxation tracks as noise (particularly other peoples) just distracts me.

BBC 4 extra comedy some BBC 6 music and a selection of podcasts, sometimes a selection from Spotify but I like to listen to something informative or funny than music, since my breakdown I've gone off music.

Planet Rock mostly although I also have an internet radio unit wired into my workshop audio system and there's an amazing array of stations and genres available from all around the globe on that, my favourites on that are classic the British comedy radio stations that play shows like The Goon Show, The Navy Lark, I'm sorry I Haven't A Clue..... etc.etc
My audio unit also plays mp3's and I'm just listening to 45 episodes of 'Round The Horne' that I downloaded recently...insanely funny !!

Radio 5 live unless they start discussing subject matter that I don't want to listen to. Which, as i'm getting older seems to be getting more and more. Then I alternate around Radio 4, Radio 2, Local radio, Classic Fm,  Ipod selection. A few pod casts. Sometimes silence. As the mood takes. All very random and eclectic.
The only music I cannot listen to is Barber Shop Quartets.
Ninety percent of "Radio" that I listen to is actually through my Samsung phone.

Radio 6 for me. I used to listen to Radio 1 until they got rid of Mark and Lard (1997-2014) then I wandered aimlessly between radio2, BBC Sussex and radio 4 before going DAB in 2012.


I like much of their output but am not a complete fan of Jazz or 'Gangsta Rap' (For those not in the know, the latter is where blokes shout about their cars, money, drugs, expensive wines and spirits, guns and misogynistic stuff about women.)

It all depends on what stage I am with the build.

I usually start off with Mission Impossible Ö.

Then with luck I eventually progress to the 1812 Overture -  With really loud cannon fire  %%

Radio 2, although this is going to be the summer of all summers cricket-wise, the World Cup followed by the Ashes, so will be switching to the cricket at 11:00am-ish, always supposing the weather starts behaving itself!
